Direct Belfast to Dublin luxury bus service launched
A luxury coach company has launched a direct service between Belfast and Dublin.
From today, Dublin Coach's M1 express service will depart from Custom Quay in Dublin and Glengall Street in Belfast, providing 16 daily journeys in both directions.
The company, which this month celebrates 10 years in business, said it opted for the non-stop option after feedback from customers. Group marketing manager Aoife Dunphy added: "Dublin Coach is delighted to provide a direct service with no stops for our M1 express service after we received feedback from our loyal customer following.
"The main aim of this new route is to give more for less to our customers, with no stops between cities.
"Through this we want to provide more daily services, more leg room and less costs with more comfort on board.
"We are really excited to add Belfast to our ever-expanding nationwide network.''
Fares for the Dublin Coach M1 express service will be €10 or £8 one-way with both currencies accepted on the vehicles.
Similar to all Dublin Coach services nationwide, two children aged under 12 will be able to travel free with every paying adult.
The company's vehicles can be easily recognised by their distinctive green livery. The firm has new Mercedes coaches with increased leg room, reclining leather seats, free wi-fi and toilets on board, operating on the route.
With the travel time less than two hours city-to-city, the company claimed that the new service would increase the standard of domestic and tourism-based travel between the two cities.
